Big Girls Should Cry

There are some people who think crying is a sign of weakness, but it is in fact very healthy to release all those pent up emotions. And in the case of Princess Althea, it is absolutely vital. After losing her mother, Althea lost the ability to cry; this made her so light that she began to float away.

When her fathers declares war on the opposing kingdom, she flees to the forest and falls in love with a sad prince, who also lost his mother. Unable to smile, he became a warrior and is set to fight against an opposing kingdom (I wonder which one). The two lovers must find a path to peace not only for their kingdoms, but inside themselves as well.

The Light Princess is a new musical loosely based on a Scottish fairy tale of the same name. In the fairy tale, the princess is cursed by her aunt to experience no gravity, and the only way to become grounded is to cry. Taking on a slightly more serious tone, the musical is suitable for children thirteen and over. Tickets are between £12-£48 at the National theatre, and the show will be on between the 25th September - 2nd January.
